Back to July 2017 Newsletter
Since this is our first official OHREC newsletter, I wanted to come up with something grandiose for our first column from the Center Director. There are certainly lots of great things happening at the farm right now including new projects, students, staff, and volunteers.
However, I would be remiss if I didn’t take this opportunity to personally thank Robin Ruether for all her hard work and dedication to the research station. Robin joined Burpee Seed Company in Pennsylvania in July and she will certainly be missed here at OHREC. She worked at the Center for 10 years and was the coordinator for the Prairie Star Flower Trial Program. Her work in that program was featured in numerous industry and trade magazines and in 2015 she was named to the “Forty Under Forty” list in Greenhouse Product News. We wish Robin the very best in her new adventure at Burpee and know that next time we open one of their catalogs, we’ll get a glimpse into all that she is doing in her new role in Pennsylvania.
